Grimsby has a population of 27,314 residents and is located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the Niagara region. Residents of Grimsby often find it challenging to access immediate medical care. There are only a few walk-in clinics in town and many have limited hours of operation. For instance, Grimsby Medical Associates at 155 Main Street East is only open until 4:30pm on weekdays and is not open on weekends. If you require medical care after hours, even for a minor health issue, your only alternative is to go to West Lincoln Memorial Hospital at 169 Main St E and wait for hours to see a doctor.
